Pianist David Fray Makes Bach Swing

French-born pianist David Fray is a relative newcomer to the classical music scene, but apparently has caught the attention of many music lovers in the span of a few years. The BBC's Music Magazine named Fray 2008 Newcomer of the Year and the German Recording Academy awarded him a 2009 Echo Klassik for his "swinging" interpretation of Bach's keyboard concertos. Watch videos of him discuss some of his ideas on the music he plays: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2I0tQIA_AE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01huqKmduvA
